Hi. I'm building complex form with titanium. Is titanium have some layout managers to positions all UI elements automatic without entering top/left positions manually.
I'm wondering how my form will look on different screen size.
Such thing may simplify building interfaces. I'm thinking about similar to layout managers known from different languages like java Swing.
Thanks for help.
In Titanium you can enable relative positioning inside a view (or window) by defining its layout property either as 'vertical' or 'horizontal'. The elements you put inside the view are laid out accordingly. Besides, in many cases you should specify the height property of the container view as 'auto' for enabling it to automatically grow as you add sub-views.
You might take a look to this example in KitchenSink http://github.com/appcelerator/KitchenSink/blob/master/KitchenSink/Resources/examples/vertical_layout_basic.js
Hi. Thanks for quick response!
Ok cool. But how to build form with label on the left and text fields on the right. I guess that I should wrap my label and text field with something (??) and this wrapper should have horizontal layout.
Is there any best practices?
Whats more how to add more UI elements between another dynamically (for example after validation with validation messages) and layout should adapt to new fields count. Is this even possible?
I worked heavily with web applications and maybe on mobile development such forms should works differently.
One more question. How to add views between another views (or other UI elements) for example to shows validation messages?
